Microphone The Nature Conservancy on what a Cerrado conservation agreement might look like

David Cleary, head of agriculture at The Nature Conservancy, talks with Toby Webb about the shifting patterns of deforestation in South America, and land conversion challenges for forests and other biomes, including the Cerrado grasslands.

They discuss the impacts of different commodities on land use change, including soy, and specifically the Cerrado manifesto and the barriers to moving to a full agreement. And they talk about the beef sector’s impact on deforestation and why its fragmentation leads to greater challenges.
